Dear Boris and Ines
In behalf of me and all of my family I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. You gave us once in a life time opportunity to visit the capital of entertainment. During our visit we hade chance to relax by the pool, see the beautiful beaches on the coast and of course had a thrill of amusement parks.
Before we return to Croatia I enclosed a photo foem downtown Orlando--Lake Eola.

This is Matt Lang. I work with George Wurtz Appvion. You and I met when we visited your facility earlier this year. At lunch, I mentioned that my wife booked a cruise to The Adriatic and Croatia.
We are here now and had a very nice day in Split. Tomorrow we are looking forward to Dubrovnik.
The history here is amazing, especially compared to the US.
You are famous here. On a walking tour, I mentioned your name and our tour guide said â€śyes, he was almost our President.â€ť Many times during the rest of the tour she used the phrase â€śAmerican Dreamâ€ť.
Thanks for promoting Croatia. The people we have met have been very good to us.
I hope you are well.

I wanted to thank you for this perfectly organised World Sales Meeting. Spending time with the Cortec family is always fruitful and a lot of fun.
As you say, Franck and I have a great challenge ahead of us. We are very much looking forward to developing our business. With the help and support of Cortec, we can achieve great things!
Your personal attention and support is also very much appreciated.

Boris, Thank you again for the award last year.
We used your timeshare this past week. It was really nice and a great location. We chose Vegas. The last time I was there I was 19 and expecting my oldest. We were probably asleep by 1030 each night but had a really fun time. We went to the Grand Canyon and Red Rock and gambled only $20 (just to say we gambled). I canâ€™t thank you enough for the opportunities you have given me by letting me work for your company. I will continue to work hard.
Thank you again!

Hope that all is well â€“ just saw your paper in the MP Supplement. Read with interest and found it very informative. It is well prepared and covers interesting topics of great importance to the industry. Well done to all who contributed and captured the technical information.

It is a true honor to receive your Chairmanâ€™s Award. Thank you very much!
Ming Shen @
Sorry I didnâ€™t write back on your kind Chairman Award soonerâ€”I was surprised by you kind thought and felt a bit â€śunder deserving â€ś.
I was thinking how to convey to the lab itâ€™s an indication of your emphasis of importance of work the lab does. And worthy lab work is recognized.
Shannon Garrow @
Thank you so much for the Chairmanâ€™s Award. I have been working here for 13 years and I can from the bottom of my heart say that it was the best move I ever made. I appreciate all the years you have mentored me to help get me to where I am today, and I look forward to the future working my hardest for Cortec and you. I believe our passion for marketing makes us a great team and I know Cortec will get to the next level and hopefully soar beyond the dreams you have for it.
Why is the sky the limit when weâ€™ve stepped on the moon!
Thank you again!

Thank you for the meeting today.
As I mentioned when we concluded the meeting, one of the best parts of my job is getting to meet entrepreneurial business owners who excel at what they do.
Peter Begich @
Thank you for wonderful autobiography you have shared and an opportunity to learn about your beginnings as an immigrant, entrepreneur, business owner and above all true Patriot along with the hard earned American Dream with many sacrifices and wonderful anecdotes that are very inspiring.

This is definitely not an easy field; injury prevention and occupational safety - for a chemical manufacturer!

Just thought you would like to know that I am fully retiring this week after being at work for 50 + years of which 22 have been working with Cortec.
I would like to thank you personally for the friendship and support you have given me over the last 22 years it has been a great pleasure and joy working with you and knowing you.
It has been especially nice to have consider myself as your friend and to have known you Mother and Father and to have felt a part of the Cortec family where I have always felt very welcome.
I am sure I will miss now not being involved in the world of VpCI corrosion inhibitors but it is now time to hang up my boots.
I wish you and Innis all the best for the future for how long you decide to carry on working.
